Will's Baptism outfit, minus his cross bib
On Saturday, June 6th, our beautiful baby boy was baptized at St. Rita Catholic Church in Alexandria, LA. He was so great. He made it through a full hour of Mass with only one little crying spell, and was absolutely amazing during the Baptismal Ceremony (even though he cried sporadically throughout the entire thing). It was such a special event and we look forward to watching him embark on his spiritual journey.
This was also a special day because we got to share the baptism with the Byrd family and their son, Ayden John. To put it simply, it was sweet.
After the baptism, the Byrd and Pierce families held a party in the boys' honor. We called it the "Big Baptism Bash of 09' " (T-Shirts will be available for purchase soon.) We would like to thank the Byrd's for opening their home up to everyone, and for providing amazing food, as well as a Slip-N-Slide for the event. Ya'll are awesome! We would also like to thank the Pierce, Holles, and Hoover clans for coming up as well. It truly meant a lot to us to have you there for this very blessed event. We would also like to thank Missy and Corey (Krissy's sister and brother) for accepting the offer to be Will's Godparents and participating in the ceremony.
